The Libertarian Party Needs to be America’s Party Now

GoGonzoJournal Featured, Gonzo, Voting Leave a Comment

My fellow Americans, Now more than ever our government needs our help.  For centuries we have believed democracy to be the best form of government, without ever experiencing true democracy.  Greed and corruption have infiltrated our government, and now Democrats and Republicans have become so hopelessly opposed and unwilling to work together that nothing is accomplished.  Our “representatives” use their …

Property is theft and property is freedom

Matt D. Harris Anarchism, Featured 17 Comments

One of the biggest divides between anarchists is whether or not property, or “ownership” is a legitimate concept.  This post seeks to define and disassemble those differences in order to help each side gain a better understanding of the issue, my thoughts on the issue, and the classic anarchist perspective on property. Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, the founding father of free market …

The Value of Nothing: Rethinking Marx, Liberty, the Individual and the State

Jehu Featured Leave a Comment

In the first part of this series (here) I argued that Karl Marx’s Individual is the same Individual who appears in the writings of 18th and 19th Century thinkers. Moreover, Marx’s assumptions imply an environment of Hobbes’ war of all against all and an increasingly illiberal, repressive and aggressive, parasitic State. In the second part of this series (here) I …

“All I know is that I am not a Marxist!”: Rethinking Marx, Liberty, the Individual and the State

Jehu Featured Leave a Comment

Now, perhaps it becomes clearer why Marx, in his exasperation with his own followers, declared, “All I know is that I am not a Marxist.” It was never about the machines, the buildings, the banks, the factories, the farms or profit, taxes and wages — it was about the Individual and her relationship to other Individuals and Society. In his …

Rethinking Marx, Liberty, the Individual and the State: Some comments

Jehu Featured Leave a Comment

I was somewhat surprised to see an interest in the theories of Karl Marx among at least a small section of libertarians, in the form of two recent articles, Brad Warbiany’s “Marxism And Libertarian Exploitation Theory” and Michael O. Powell’s “Rethinking Marx”. Given the continuing distortion among even most Marxists of Marx’s theories, not to mention the blatant misrepresentation of …

Confronting Ignored Issues On Our Journey To A Stateless Society

Punk Johnny Cash Anarchism Leave a Comment

The state realizes that if it can address an issue it can profit from the issue. Let us take a bill here on the ballot in November. It is being sold as a way to ‘stop puppy mills’. The state has found a villain that many can oppose. In response the state proposed a new tax on these puppy mills. …

Mexico’s Illegal Immigration Problem

Punk Johnny Cash immigration 2 Comments

↑ Grab this Headline Animator I stumbled across a post from Latin in America: At best, they may think that it stems from Central and South American’s overstaying their welcome in the country en route to the United States. But the majority of illegal immigrants in Mexico are actually from the United States. According to Mexico’s federal bureau of immigration, …

Liberty, Freedom and Rights

Punk Johnny Cash Anarchism Leave a Comment

I hear all sides of the political spectrum argue for their ‘rights’. From their bill of rights to the freedom brought by a gun, liberty, freedom and rights are constantly thrown around and mean something completely different to almost everyone who utters the words. I reject the concept of liberty, freedom and rights. None will ever truly be obtained. They …

Originally posted at C4SS by Anna Morgenstern If you have an interest in a stateless society, you need to understand what the state is. Otherwise you could end up chasing shadows, and many self-proclaimed anarchists often do so, unfortunately. When you look around you, you can see examples of its handiwork everywhere. Every police car you see, the various “permits” …

The National Inventory Of Human Beings Vs. The Migrant

Punk Johnny Cash immigration 1 Comment

Are you authorized to exist within the confines of the state? Have you been cataloged and placed in big brothers database? The right has gone on a rampage against migrants. The hypocritical belief seems to be that liberty and freedom should be afforded to those that are born into it seems to contradict many of their stances on the constitution. …

“It serves to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration….agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one….against another….it opens the door to foreign influence and corruption…thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.” -George Washington Author: PunkJohnnyCash Visit PunkJohnnyCash’s Website – Email …
